Fruits (and Tips) for Summer Grilling

One of summer’s best offerings is juicy fresh fruit, but don’t limit yourself by only serving it cold. Some of your favorite fruits take on a whole new level of yum when they land on the grill. Here are some fruits to try the next time you fire up your BBQ or grill pan, and some tips for serving.

TIP: Before you grill any fruit, be sure to start with a clean grill. Scrape it, brush it, and let it scorch clean for several minutes before placing any fruit on it. The last thing you want is fruit that tastes like meat or fish!

Stone Fruits

Apricots, peaches, plums and nectarines are amazing on the grill. Simply halve them, remove the pit, and give them a light brush of olive oil before placing on a hot grill. About 2-3 minutes per side is ideal. Serve them alongside grilled meats, or cold cheeses, or even with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Melon

Your favorite melons take on a deep, rich flavor with some char from the grill. Leave the rind on watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew and other obscure melons for best results. A little sprinkle of brown sugar before you place them on the grill will produce a candied effect; however, straight on the grill and then a sprinkle of salt or honey and lemon zest. Two minutes per side is adequate for a one-inch thick slice.

Pineapple

If you thought it was impossible to turn pineapple any sweeter, you were wrong. Grilled pineapple is delicious as a topping on a burger or a dessert unto itself. Cut thick slices or wedges and place directly on the grill for about three minutes per side.

Tomatoes

Technically a fruit, tomatoes are delicious on the grill. Slice in half and grill only on the skin side for about 2-3 minutes or until char marks appear. Serve on pasta, or with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of salt and pepper.

Bananas

Your summer banana split has a great new flavor with grilled bananas on the bottom. Slice bananas in half lengthwise and spray with cooking spray before grilling for about 2 minutes per side. Remove the peel and top with your favorite ice cream and toppings.

TIP: Grilling is a great place for experimentation. If you think a favorite fruit might be good on the grill–give it a try!

Top Ten Road Trip Must-Haves

Hitting the open road this summer? You’ll want to take some of our best tips with you for ultimate cruising pleasure.

1. Download our Best Road Trip Games and keep a copy in the glove compartment at all times. The best way to diffuse tension on hour seven is with a game that gets everybody laughing and thinking.

2. Have you started using the Waze app yet? It keeps you apprised of real-time traffic and slow-downs and suggests alternate routes to get you where you need to go as quick as you can.

3. Stock a cooler with a range of great snacks. Gas station nachos are great (are they?), but you don’t want to rely on them to keep you satisfied. A mix of fruits, nuts, cheese, dried meats and some sweets will give you an easy range of options to suit your cravings.

4. Keep lots of water in the car, more than you think you’ll need. Travel is dehydrating, and in the event that you get delayed or sidetracked, you’ll have plenty on hand.

5.  Stop for scenic outlooks. Getting out, stretching your legs, and taking a few selfies is a great way to keep travelers happy. Plus, you’ll see vistas and views that you’d otherwise miss!

6. Keep a map or atlas on hand. In the event that your cell phone dies or the GPS can’t find a signal, having a map with you means peace of mind.

7. Ask locals where to eat. If you’re stopping for a meal, forego the fast food chains and find out what the locals like. Use apps like Yelp or simply ask the person filling up next to you. It could lead you to great spots only the locals know!

8. Travel with cookies. A tin of Mrs. Fields cookies travels well anywhere you go, and the cookies are individually wrapped to keep them fresh mile after mile!

9. Invest in good sunglasses. Polarized lenses will keep your eyes protected and relaxed all day long, keeping glares and headaches far away.

10. Break long trips down into smaller pieces. Avoid “Are we there yet?” by making smaller check points along the way.

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

12 ice cream sandwiches
1 carton whipped topping
peanut butter sundae syrup

Directions
Lay three ice cream sandwiches on a freezer-safe serving plate to form a square. Drizzle a little peanut butter syrup across the top to serve as a binding agent, then layer three more on top in the opposite direction. Repeat the process until you have four layers and a complete cube. Next, frost the cake with the whipped topping and freeze again for about 20-30 minutes, or until whipped topping becomes firm. Finally, drizzle a generous amount of peanut butter and magic shell syrup all over the cake, allowing some to run down the sides. Freeze again before serving.
